How to unlock the secret ending in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

There are two major tasks that you must complete in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity if you wish to view the game's secret ending.

The first is obvious - you need to finish Age of Calamity's main campaign, which means completing all 20 story mission spread across seven chapters.


Once you've completed every story mission, you'll unlock the post-game content for Age of Calamity, which includes a variety of new challenges and, more importantly, the ability to unlock Terrako as a playable character.

If you want to view the secret ending, then unlocking Terrako is the second task that you need to complete. Be prepared, however, for this task to take you a substantial amount of time, as it involves completing a number of high levelled challenges.


When you have finally unlocked Terrako, you'll be able to watch the secret ending for Age of Calamity, along with a second version of the game's credits.
